    Joey, Brandon, Scott, and Arthur (and if Joey isn't named tomorrow, you KNOW I will not be a happy camper )

    IMO, there's no way Joey's not taken. It would be a crime. For Rhodes it wouldn't be fair either, but I understand the whole non-starter or closer thing (not that I like it). Phillips and Rolen really have to be in there too. They all very much deserve to be all-stars, but something tells me those making the team will not want 4 guys from a team with a decade like we've had.

    Only Scott Rolen. Not saying others don't deserve it.

    Re: One last time... what Reds will be announced as All-Stars tomorrow?

    I'm sorry but if there is EVER a year when we finally deserve to have more than one All Star, it's this year. We can't control the starters because our fan base isn't huge but there is no reason for a first place team...a team that's playing well, that most folks had as a sleeper pick this year, that finally seems to be turning things around, that's also been getting much more media attention...there is absolutely no reason for them NOT to have more than one All Star named tomorrow. I think the players selections will be quite interesting this year (I can easily see the players voting for a few of our guys, mainly Joey and Scott with an outside shot for Arthur) and Charlie Manuel's decisions will be interesting as well. I will honestly be a little stunned and pretty upset if the Reds don't have at least three guys named to that team. That would be so disappointing for them although the players probably won't care as much as the fans. I think it would almost be a slap in the face for the Reds to only have one All Star this year when several of them have had such strong seasons so far and really deserve it.

    /end rant and maybe I'm naive about the whole thing, but if the Orioles, who also haven't won for a long time, can get FOUR guys on the All Star team like they did five years ago when they were having a great first half (the four guys were Roberts, Mora, Tejada, and BJ Ryan), then certainly we can have three or four of our guys on the team this year too

    Votto and Rhodes. The others deserve it, but won't get noticed.

    Agreed, and to me it's a good thing our guys get 3 days off and not risk injury in this joke of a baseball game.

    Votto and Rolen should be locks....no brainers.

    I think Phillips has a chance to squeek in there as well.

    Utley's injury should get Phillips in.Votto and Rolen should be locks I agree.

    Nothing written in stone yet but if those three do get in anyone know the last time the Reds had that many playing in the All-Stars game?

    there really aren't a bunch of solid All Stars at SS this year, and an overabundance of 2B All Star candidates. Torre might go with one less SS and one more 2B because of that, especially a 2B who has played SS. That could help Phillips.

    Charlie Manuel decides, not Torre.

    With that said...I think without a doubt, based on numbers, it SHOULD be Votto, Rolen and Phillips.

    I think Rolen (especially with Polanco out) and Votto stand a good chance. I didn't think Phillips did before, but with Utley going out he might get in now.
